Adam Trussler from CMi in the UK
CMI Corporation Limited is a UK based distributor located 30 miles south of London in the town of Godalming.
For the last 20 Years CMI has been a Global distributor of Wireless Networking, RFID, RTLS and Networking Security solutions. We have partners across the globe delivering solutions for autonomous vehicles, rapid deployment CCTV, transportation connectivity, tunnelling and mining, maritime and container ports to name a few. CMI prides itself on supporting our customers from concept to commissioning.
My role at CMI is Sales Director, and whilst I am responsible for revenue targets, strategy, tactics I am also involved in the day to day running of the business. We are a very close team, most of us have been working together for 10 years + and will go above and beyond to support each other.
I left school and went on to study business at College, I was then offered a sales position at a large UK Distributor and worked my way up the sales ladder, learning a lot on the way. This was the 90’s and with a UK boom in IT, it was a pretty cutthroat, high target, high pressure and fast learning environment! It taught me a lot and bought me in contact with a network of people that now hold high level positions in some key UK businesses.
Outside of work I’m a keen sports person, I try and make the gym most days and I’m still playing football (Age 43) even though it’s for a veteran’s team! If I’m not participating in sport, then you can be pretty sure I’ll be watching it! My children are 17 and only need me as a bank to loan them money… We have a 3-year-old German Shepherd “Bruce” who demands at least 3 long walks a day so hiking has become a key part of everyday life for us.
I love to cook, both my parents are retired chef’s and I find immense enjoyment in the kitchen making dishes for friends and family, I can’t say what my favourite food is… I love it all! I’ve been fortunate to travel a lot, but I think my favourite place is the Amalfi Coast, Italy. It’s simply stunning and offers amazing Italian cuisine.
